I actually got these from the Shoe Mart.

I agree...I have put plenty of scuffs of this magnitude and worse (concrete steps are brutal) on my my shell...brushing - and time- eventually takes care of it...add paste as you normally would (after 18.3 wears) and you they will look like -almost new...

Or you could just float 3 inches above the ground and never get any blemishes on your shoes like Mac biggrin.gif

Still amazed at how some of the boots are so well cared, when I bump, scratch, scuff my shoes the very first day I wear them

Is this colour Ravello? Or is it the darker brown from Alden x J. Crew?

Personally, I would go with a darker color...Cigar or #8. Whiskey is not so versatile, IMO.

Anyone know of any stores in NYC that stock E widths? Thinking about a shell LWB.

would it make a difference if this was Ravello cordovan? which it is

Sorry for the PSA, but have slowly come to the realization that Barrie lasted shoes don't work for my feet. I have the long since sold out #4/Black saddle bluchers in size 10D from Leathersoul that I am parting with. Worn exactly 3 times to the office, they are in pristine shape. Looking to get $500 or best offer and can circulate pics. PM me if interested.
